Vision Vs. Sight

Did You Know Most Vision Takes Place in the Brain?

The eye takes the picture of what we see. Our brain helps us decode what it is.

Vison is a three-step process involving (1) the eye, which captures the image, (2) the visual pathway within the brain (which delivers the image from the eye to the brain) and (3) the visual cortex (which interprets or gives meaning to the images).

Even children with 20/20 vision can experience symptoms such as visual fatigue, headaches, or difficulty with visual tasks because of disturbances along the neuropathways of the vision system within the brain. These patients experience struggles in school or the inability to enjoy regular activities.

A functional eye exam can uncover areas of weakness in the visual system and account for physical symptoms. To schedule a functional eye exam, please contact our affiliate optometric practice, Advanced Vision Center.

The Power of Visual Neuroplasticity In CogniViision™ Vision Therapy

For many years, scientists believed the brain ceased developing at 7-12 years of age and could no longer grow or change. The latest research in neuroscience indicates that the brain has visual neuroplasticity, or the capacity of the brain to change, adapt, and form new neuropathways. Changes in response to stimuli, cognitive demands and new learning, and can occur at ANY AGE!

Dr. Lorenzana spent years in researching visual neuroplasticity to develop VSII’s proprietary CogniViision™ vision therapy protocol. Unlike conventional vision therapy, CogniViision™ “trains the brain” for better motor and cognitive visual processing skills. Patients see gains in the classroom, the boardroom and on the playing field.
